If you've been following along on social media or getting email updates, these new tank tops may look familiar... What you may not know is their story or how to wear them. Just in time for summer, we're going to share more about these cute, comfy tanks!
Intern Amy here! I'm so excited to share more about the amazing story behind these tanks. The Bailey tanks (see: fun polka dots in grey and lime) and the Mango Pocket tank (see: patterned pocket) were dreamt up by designers in sunny California. Each piece is then made by hand by someone in another country. The Bailey tanks and the Mango Pocket tank come from Peru. A tag on your apparel will tell you exactly who made it and what country they're from.
The woman in Peru who made your tank gets education about business, literacy, nutrition, and more. As she is strengthened, she becomes self-sufficient and can impart these skills to her family. While she's working, her kids get help with homework and have a safe place to play. Not only is the woman working enabled, but her family and community, too!
When you buy from Paisley + Sparrow, your purchase makes an impact– and these tops are no different. They're stylish and comfortable, yet they're much more than ethical fashion statements. Since each tank is made by a woman across the ocean in Peru, you're empowering her when you wear these tanks!
Hey everyone, Intern Chandler here to tell you how you can style these lovely tanks! They are must haves in your summer wardrobe this year and will definitely become your go-to casual top to wear to the movies, lunch dates, shopping sprees, and family outings.
I am completely obsessed with polka dots (who isn't?!), so of course I am crazy about the Bailey Tanks. The lime Bailey Tank is a fun pop of color, so I chose to style it with neutral shorts and black bracelets that match the polka dots (see Dusk Silver Bangles). Amy wore the grey Bailey Tank with jeans and the cream Layered Spike Necklace. Both the lime and grey Bailey Tanks are super comfy and match just about any shorts/denim, so you can look cute in these styles all summer long!
The Mango Pocket Tank is just as comfy and stylish as the Bailey Tanks, plus it has a pocket! Recently, I have seen this style of tank everywhere I shop, with the patterned frocket (front pocket!), and I have to say that I am in love with it. Our Mango Pocket Tank goes wonderfully with gold jewelry, such as the gold Dereje Necklace and the Salenyia Wide Top Bracelet. Also, it pairs well with a light wash denim jacket, for the cooler days this summer.
Hot summer days are on their way, and you can look good and feel good in these new tanks. Shop apparel and make a difference here!
